Rankings in Review: State Anti Cruelty Laws 2020
Join Animal Legal Defense Fund staff attorney Kathleen Wood as she discusses the annual Animal Protection Laws Rankings Report. Each year, our attorneys compile and review every state and territory’s animal protection laws and rank them according to the relative strength and weakness of their laws. Kathleen will discuss what goes into creating our Compendium and Rankings Report, as well as the highlights from 2019, including most-improved states and legislative trends.
